Itchy perianal area with pinkish skin in spots

For better part of a year now I have been very itchy down in my perianal area up to my scrotum. I decided to take a mirror and look. Im fairly tan complected and saw that I have a patch of pinkish / reddish skin right behind my scrotum leading back to my anus. My anus at times itches too.

If I start to scratch it's very hard to stop. Could this be a yeast infection? Jock itch? Intertrigo?
